We always talk about the importance of digitization in a company, about how important it is for its proper functioning to implement a document management system, but what about historical documents? These must be protected in order not to be able to and one of the ways is through digitization.
All historical documents keep the evolution of the history of humanity. They explain how our ancestors lived and thanks to them we can understand the origin of many things that we use today, be it architecture, engineering, writing, language, development, etc…everything we are and have has an origin that is reflected in those documents.
Hence the importance of protecting them, and a good way to do it is through digitization. In this way, we not only make sure that they are not lost or deteriorate, but we also make sure that we can spread them, study them, and know them thoroughly so that, through the past, we can understand the present and the future.
In addition, digitizing them will improve any management that must be done, from location, transfer, etc. and will facilitate its location.
This process is not an easy task, for this it is essential to have a good file manager or archivist and to have a good document management system.
Thanks to this we will be able to count on these documents reaching the people, and it will be easier to transmit that knowledge through digital libraries or directly through the Internet. History and culture within everyone’s reach.
